    Hello,

     

    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

     

    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Change Password from the Installer menu up at top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

     

    *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Change Password.*

     

    It can also be done in Ssytem Oreferences>Accounts, unlock the lock...
